I'm thrilled that my new short story, The Ice. 1867, has been awarded the E J Brady "Mallacoota" Short Story Prize 2018-19. Many thanks to the judging panel. You can now read the story on their website via the following link.
My first book launch (at Avid Reader book shop) is booked out, so the only sensible thing to do is have a second one! Brisbane writers and readers who are interested, drop me a line at email@example.com and I'll send you the details. It's on Thursday evening, June 6th, in the Valley. Same format as the first one: relaxed and fun.
